The mayor of Salamanca, Carlos Garcia Carbayo, together with the CEO and Founder of Startup Olé, Emilio Corchado, will present today the new edition of the technological entrepreneurship event, Startup Ole 22, at FITUR, the International Tourism Fair that is being held these days in Madrid. During the presentation, a video of the event will be shown, in which some of the news, activities and benefits of the international meeting will be revealed.
One of the main novelties this year is the participation of the European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Maria Gabriel, that will inaugurate the new edition of Startup Olé next September 6 in Salamanca, as well as a future meeting of the group of the 41 alliances of European Universities, a meeting between young people or the creation of a youth manifesto, all taking advantage of the fact that 2022 is the European Year of Youth.
Startup Olé 22 will not only be present at FITUR, since on February 17 it will be held an event at the Palacio de la Bolsa in Madrid for the international launch of the new edition of technological entrepreneurship.
The eighth edition of the event will take place on September 6, 7 and 8 at the Salamanca Congress Palace, the Hospedería Fonseca, the Colegio Arzobispo Fonseca, the R+D+I building of the University of Salamanca and the San Blas Auditorium.
All these buildings will host various activities aimed at promoting technological entrepreneurship and open innovation, such as round tables, workshops, pitch competitions, startup fairs, matchmaking or networking activities, among others. As in other editions, the event will have the support of the University of Salamanca, the Salamanca City Council, the Salamanca Provincial Council and other major players in the national and international entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Startup Olé will take advantage of its presence at FITUR to present the new CYL-HUB project, which will take place throughout the year 2022 until September 2023 and whose main objective is to promote the entrepreneurial culture, as well as the startups from Castilla y León.
This initiative has received the support of the Junta de Castilla y León with a grant for the development of initiatives aimed at promoting job creation, the ecological transition, social and territorial cohesion, digitization and gender equality. The funding received is through the Next Generation funds from the European Union.
